I have seen the wonderful videos floating around by https://raubdruckerin.de I have been looking for some local manhole covers that might make an interesting print.
I have admired the texture and patterns of things in the street for years.
I was searching for a safe place to print from a manhole cover. And a place that was a little inconspicuous.
I used this pattern to make a screen print many years ago. Do you notice what is at your feet?
Get in close and see if from a new angle. You might be inspired.
I found this one right near the shop. It is one the side walk instead of the street. So I could safely play with making some prints.
I pulled a couple of prints on some old t-shirts. I was quite pleased with the impression. This is a mirror image so the you can read the printing.
I think that the asymmetrical placement of the marks is interesting. It takes quite bit of ink to get the surface “primed” so it would be better to print several at a time.
I encourage you to pause and notice the textures and patterns at your feet. Who knows it may inspire your next printmaking session.
Embrace the beauty before you. Be inspired.
